Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern look outraged at the claim coming from Metro who seem to think that they could be set to offer Abou Diaby a new deal.
Now as the majority of our regulars note over a game of pool, Diaby has been injury prone at best and they think that the money spent on his weekly wage could well be utilised elsewhere.
Unsurprisingly, it seems that manager Arsene Wenger disagrees however with the Frenchman noting: “The football player needs mobility of his ankle. When your ankle mobility is restricted, you compensate with something else.
“He suffered from a very bad tackle in Sunderland six or seven years ago. He was the victim of an assassin’s tackle that was never punished. It has restricted the mobility of his ankle.
“If he comes back, I will keep him. I always believed in him. In football, the most important thing is health.”
That has certainly not gone down well with our Arsenal fans here in the tavern who think that Diaby needs to be shipped out of the club ASAP; not offered a new deal that will keep him there longer!
Arsenal fans. Would you offer Diaby a new deal or is this just more examples of Wenger having lost the plot yet again? Let us know your thoughts below.
